LEE COUNTY, Fla. - Lee County Domestic Animal Services is investigating a possible hoarding case in San Carlos Park.
Friday, Lee County deputies were called to 17276 Malaga Road after several complaints about the outside appearance of the home. Animal Control and the local fire department responded as well.
There were reports of an unkempt lawn and the homeowner had not been seen in two weeks. When deputies entered the home, they weren't prepared for what they found.
